Hey Ria, how has this year been for you so far?
This year has been amazing so far, I got my first record deal. That alone is a plus of my 2021.
With everything that happened last year was your creativity affected?
Yes, it did. It was crazy but it was a vibe and my creativity was affected but in a good way. I mean, I only got better because that’s the only way I can go. The only way I recognise it up.
How did you first get into music? What sparked the interest?
Well, I’ve loved music since I had tiny hands and the more I grew the more I kind of realised I could sing. From there my passion for it grew and then when I wrote my first song, that one attempt did it for me, that was the spark.
You’re from Nigeria, do you think being from here impacted your sound in any way?
Yes, it very much did impact my sound, but also in a good way.
And you’ve just dropped your new single “Lemonade”, talk us through the production process and creativity behind the single?
I wrote the song a few days before I recorded it without a beat, but I had an idea in my head and I needed a groovy local type of beat so I pull up to the studio and the first beat Randay “the producer” played was exactly what I was looking for and we made a jam without any stress.
